So I played last year for several months and worked hard to make the things I wanted to do viable to make money. I trained hard to get into mining ships and get positioned in null sec with lots of BPOs so I could start my life of industry, then we decided that a grand redistribution and scarcity phase would make the environment better. Well? Better for who, I ask. Not better for the players with a handful of months in the game.
I stopped playing for a bit, my system was camped. I retained subscription for probably 8 months training towards other things, I simply didn’t log in. I finally unsubscribed because I wasn’t using it.
Two months ago, a buddy asked me to get back into the game and I reluctantly came back. I bought a rorq and started training towards nexus invulnerability core so I can afford to use the thing and buy people time to help. Now I’m hearing CCP intends to nerf the rorqual.
I also do null ratting so I can try to stay afloat, but now I hear that will also be requiring a more attentive focus due to some change we’re making in the future.
CCP, it feels like you are actively targeting me. The default answer when I ask how to make money is “go do whatever you like” “there are lots of ways to make money”, well, I’m doing what I like, and I’m training toward what I want to do but your plans are ruining mine. Please put all ores back in null sec. Please don’t screw with the thing I’ve spent months training into and invested in. Please STOP trying to adjust things and just let me play the game. If you want to mess with stuff, I recommend messing with the bounty system and other things that could use your focus. I need you to understand the impact that your decisions have on players with only a year or two in game that can’t compete with the 15+ year characters with lots of skills. Your changes have a huge impact on the newer players, but much less of one on the older ones.
patiently awaits both the unlikely reply from CCP and the unavoidable trolling from players with 17+ years and countless skillpoints already prepared to easily transition to some other isk earning scheme
